How there's a bit of Neanderthal in all of us: DNA link to cavemen revealed

The first genomes sequences of Neanderthals and Denisovans revealed that these groups interbred with anatomically modern humans more than 30,000 years ago. But now more complete versions of the Denisovan and Neanderthal genomes reveal another notch in the belt of our ancient ancestors. The Denisovan interbred with an unknown 'archaic ancestor' in Asia.

Discovery of Strange Ancient Human Bedfellow Sheds Light on Genetic Diversity

Early humans lived in a world that one evolutionary geneticist compared to the fantasy world of Lord of the Rings. Not only were there many hominid populations, but these populations interbred, contributing to the genetic diversity of modern humans.

Neanderthal head reconstruction front view

This front view reconstruction shows some of the distinctive skull features of Neanderthals including the relatively flat and receding forehead, projecting mid-face region, thick rounded brow ridge, and large and rounded orbits (eye sockets).

Ancient Humans bred with Unknown Species ~ New study presented to the Royal Society meeting on ancient DNA revealed the genome of one of our ancient ancestors, the Denisovans, contains a segment of DNA that seems to have come from another species that is CURRENTLY UNKNOWN to SCIENCE. The discovery suggests that there was rampant interbreeding between ancient human species in Europe and Asia more than 30,000 years ago, and that they also mated with a mystery species, neither human nor…

Homo sapiens - Neanderthal abili cacciatori. Si vestivano con le pelli di animali

Svante Pääbo’s genome-sequencing project hopes to point up the differences that enabled humans, unlike the Neanderthals, with whom they interbred, to build complex societies.

Recently discovered skeletal remains in Italy, which date 30,000 to 40,000 years old, are possibly those of a hybrid between a Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis or Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) and human (Homo sapiens)! The individual's lower jaw is currently being examined, and it seems to indicate a hominin which had a face that looked intermediate between a Neanderthal and modern human. Genetic analysis -> female Neanderthal and a male Homo sapiens.

Neanderthal brains were adapted to allow them to see better and maintain larger bodies, according to new research by the University of Oxford and the Natural History Museum, London.
